Due to a number of big shows being launched in recent times, there’s been a huge rise in viewership with the TRP battle between the shows and channels heating up. So which show is currently on top among the recent ones? Surprisingly, the latest ratings for week 38 (2013) reveal that ‘Comedy nights with Kapil’ on Colors has topped the charts, scoring over KBC, Bigg Boss and Mahabharat with a TVT rating(TRP is now called TVT-television viewership in thousands) of 7244. Superb humour on the show, a talented cast and the fact that it’s a family show(more or less) with a distinctive take are things which have worked in it’s favour.
Second in line is the just launched mythological show ‘Mahabharat’ on Star Plus which has got off to a flying start. The daily show made a fantastic debut on Sep- 16 and since then, it has got rave reviews for it’s grand look and fresh approach to retelling the Indian epic. It’s got a TVT rating of 6356.
KBC comes a close third with a TVT rating of 6134. With a new format, 7 crores of prize money and Amitabh Bachchan as the host, the show runs from Fri-Sun on Sony. Bigg Boss 7 is in the fourth place with a TVT of 5456. It’s worth noting that Bigg Boss runs round the week with Salman appearing on Sat-Sun.
